President Donald Trump talks about China (Screen cap).

President Donald Trump seemed confused again about his trade war.

On a day when Republicans are saying that they’re not up to support him, Trump somehow decided to blame Democrats.

“Can you imagine Cryin’ Chuck Schumer saying out loud, for all to hear, that I am bluffing with respect to putting Tariffs on Mexico. What a Creep. He would rather have our Country fail with drugs & Immigration than give Republicans a win. But he gave Mexico bad advice, no bluff!”

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Tuesday that he is unwilling to pass any of Trump’s tariffs. Just months ago, China said that they believed Trump was bluffing on tariffs.

Michigan congresswoman has a ‘voter protection plan’ to keep Trump from stealing the election

Published

In Michigan's 8th Congressional District, Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin has not only been campaigning for reelection — the former CIA officer has also been sounding the alarm about the possibility voter intimidation and things that President Donald Trump might do to steal the election. And she discusses some of her concerns in an interview with Politico published this week.
